have been telling us that for months now they've been warning the united states about this growing extremist threat and that they have been growing ever more concerned about how little control they actually themselves have over the situation. >> arwa, please be careful over there in benghazi. we'll stay in close touch. arwa damon, one of our courageous journalists. the egyptian capital is tense, the u.s. embassy is tense. ben wedeman, what's going on now? are they out in tahrir square? >> at the moment it's gone relatively quiet. ta tahrir square looks normal, given it's 3:00 a.m.. in the streets below me, just a few protesters milling around. we haven't heard the bang of tear gas being fired by the security forces. this day could have been much worse in egypt. the muslim brotherhood had called for nationwide protests against this offensive youtube video that sparked this crisis, but at the last moment they cancelled those protests. so really we've seen a small protest outside the u.s. consulate in alexandria. here in cairo the numbers are down. it's important to keep in mind there
, what will your response be? at times combative. >> some of the behaviors in our united states and the region. >> how would you feel if one of your children dated a jew? and i will ask him about basic human rights and reggae s and g. >>> "piers morgan tonight" starts now. mr. president, welcome to new york. many americans see you as public enemy number one. how do you feel about that? >> translator: the creator, the almighty, the most gracious and the most merciful. and good morning to you. i wish to greet all of the wonderful people of the united states and all of the people who will see your program. at the end of the day, if you do have personal animosity towards me, don't transfer that on to the rest of the people of the united states. we love the people of the united states, and they also wish in return peace and stability for all of the world. >> the big catalyst for protests at the moment in the middle east was the video that was released which mocked the prophet muhammad. as a result, there was an attack as you know on the american embassy in benghazi, libya, the ambass
all of the wonderful people of the united states and all of the people who will see your program. at the end of the day, if you do have personal animosity towards me, don't transfer that on to the rest of the people of the united states. we love the people of the united states, and they also wish in return peace and stability for all of the world. >> the big catalyst for protests at the moment in the middle east was the video that was released which mocked the prophet muhammad. as a result, there was an attack as you know on the american embassy in benghazi, libya, the ambassador christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attacking which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people we condemn. likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly, offending the holy prophet is quite ugly. this has very little or nothing to do with freedom and freedom of speech. this is the weakness and the abuse of freedom. and in many places it is a crime
of the united states, giving his first extended response to questions about yesterday's events in benghazi, libya and in cairo, egypt. >> mr. president, for the first time since 1979, a sitting ambassador, christopher stevens, plus three other americans were killed in the line of duty. we send more than a billion dollars a year to egypt, tens of millions to libya after its liberation. is it time to reconsider foreign aid to countries where many of the people don't want us around? >> well, look, the united states doesn't have an option of withdrawing from the world, and we're the one indispensable nation. countries all around the world look to us for leadership, even countries where sometimes you experience protests. so it's important for us to stay engaged, but, obviously, what happened last night was heartbreaking. and libya in particular is a government that is very friendly towards us. the vast majority of libyans welcomed the united states' involvement. they understand that it's because of us that they got rid of a dictator who would crush their spirits for 40 years. many libyans came
to the streets in baghdad and threatened violence to the united states. we are learning that the libyan government has arrested four men suspect in the deadly attack on the u.s. embass nebenghazi on tuesday. now, that took the life of four americans. libyan officials are telling us that more suspects are being sought. fears are intensifying that another wave of violence could be coming as protesters are scheduled to storm the streets again tomorrow. once again, this is a live look at pictures of the ongoing violence outside of the u.s. embass necairo. our reporter is standing by with the latest from cairo. leyland? >> reporter: good evening, sean. 3:00 a.m. in the morning here in cairo. still, the tear gas valley and it is rubber bullet shots from the egyptian police and military, trying to keep the protesters away from the u.s. embassy continue here. all day, we have had these battles, where the protesters make their way up to the compound and then are pushed back. walls of tear gas is what it took, and the tear gas is filling downtown cairo, made its way up to the positions on the bal
that's subject to review by something called the committee on foreign investments in the united states. a big committee that reviews this stuff. the treasury secretary heads it up. when that committee was reviewing this deal with, congress went absolutely nuts over it it. in the end, that deal did not go through. that was in 2005. china was not allowed to come in and buy that company. now they are trying good. they are in the process of trying to buy a canadian oil company. but again, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s. has some jurisdiction here because the canadian company does a lot of business in our gulf of mexico. this is a chinese government-owned giant oil company trying to buy american oil infrastructure. think the deal is going to go through this time? it's a $15 billion oil deal. you think it's going to go through? it didn't in 2005. hount this new version? since the last time the united states said no, cnooc is famous for going into business with iran. they are in the process of developing a huge iranian natural gas field. i know it's china and china doesn't fo
his speech. netanyahu has been critical of the united states, saying there is no more time for diplomacy on iran's nuclear program. plus, mira sore vino stops about her crusade to stop human trafficking and tomorrow you will meet a teacher who struggled a teacher that strug d for years and then found a way to profit off of what she was doing in the classroom and it turned her in to a millionaire. it's an amazing story. it is "out front" tomorrow. here's piers morgan tonight. >>> tonight, nuclear threat in the east, mahmoud ahmadinejad says he is the victim. >> no one feels secure or safe, even those who have stockpiled thousands of atomic bombs and other arms in their arsenals. >> we hear what will it take to keep iran from getting the bomb. >> i don't see victims. i see hard-working ohioans. >> we can't afford four more years like the last four years. we have to get the economy going again. >> campaigns go head to head. what the latest means. nate silver will be asked if romney can win and deepak chopra, wesley clark and ameerah al-taweel. things get lively at the clinton
in the classroom come monday morning. the taliban say they are responsible for the deaths of two united states marines. it happened in helmand province. a joint u.s. and british base where britain's prince harry is stationed. taliban have threatened to capture or kill harry during taliban. >>> new graphic video today out of syria. at least 145 people were killed across the country today. that's according to an opposition group. syria's president says he's committed to resolving the crisis as long as peace efforts are conducted in neutrality sxindens. he met today with a new international envoy from the united nations. and arab league. special envoy for the u.n. refugee agency, angelina jolie is speaking out about the syrian crisis. >> i share in everyone's concerns about the winter approaching. with the violence and conflict showing no signs of easing up and the numbers growing as people are crossing the borders and -- it is a very large concern for all of us and i hope we can all work together to make sure that, of course, you know, to be blunt, nobody freezes to death in this very, very frig
saying ice free in as early as 202. we have a responsibility. in the united states we are about the only educated country or oecd country that will argue that this isn't primarily a human problem. somehow, we have to take this take this political system and move it the right way. it's time for the united states, in this area, to lead. we didn't lead. we should have led. after kyoto, it is time right now, urgently for the united states to team with china and lead us forward, out of where we are in carbon and in to a new, responsibility as global citizens. >> united states doesn't have to go through a battle to lead the world. you are already leading. you have other leaders who are emerging out there, which is fine. this is a globalized world. so just embrace them. keep inspiring and keep doing what you are doing. believe in young people. believe in technology and science and have leaders like them lead the way. >> it's a marathon. it's a marathon, not a sprint. i'm 37. i've done all the things you can possibly do in music, and i never thought i would be able to do those things when i was
, the united states is doing well and you know, i think that's a kind of typical no drama obama response. >> alex, is that what it is, the cool head of the president? >> i think there's something to that, but i think there's also a little more, and that is that this president's great strength is his intellect. he lives inside his head and his ideas. and part of it is he doesn't really feel your pain like paul's former boss, bill clinton, but he can memorize a study about it, you know. people are distant from this president. there's a certain sense of arrogance to this white house that they're just detached from it and i think that's a vulnerability. we have two elite candidates running for president. we have an academic elite, barack obama, running against financial elite. so the middle class is up for grabs here. >> alex, i want to ask you about something i saw you tweet over the weekend. you said when i see romney he looks like a candidate. when i see obama he looks like a president. this should not be hard to fix, so fix it. what do you mean? wasn't one of the governor's big selling p
of the united states off the ground. i'll talk to the man who did it. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with important news just in to "the situation room." our brand-new poll shows president obama receiving a significant bounce from the democratic national convention. he now leads mitt romney 52% to 46%. that's among likely voters nationwide. all this according to our brand-new cnn orc poll. let's get to our chief national correspondent, john king, over at the magic wall. >> a six-point national lead. the president benefited most from his convention. let's look deeper at the other numbers. let's look here -- here's one of the big reasons why. this is among men. the republicans almost always have a big advantage among men. the president, this is a tie essentially. the president with a one-point lead among men. but look at the difference. going into the democratic convention, it was governor romney who had a big lead a 12-point lead among men. that's one of the reasons the president comes out of his convention in much stronger shape. then you ask people who's best in
the united states could be rome before the fall? how would you fix this economy and how long do you think it will take? tell me at facebook or via twitter. let's keep the conversation going. back now to cnn saturday for the latest headlines. >>> from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, this is cnn's "saturday morning." >> we will bring to justice those who took them from us. >> u.s. embassies under attack. a film sparking rage in the muslim world is blamed for protests against america in more than a dozen countries, and the deaths of four americans. they are breaking points, the thresholds of no return. and maybe who separates east from war. they're called red lines. all morning we're putting them in focus. >>> jeffrey mcdonald in prison for the grizzly murder of his wife and daughters in 1970. but academy award-winner aerol morris says he may be innocent. i'll talk to him live. good morning, everyone. it is 10:00 on the east coast. 7:00 a.m. out west. we begin this morning with the latest on the anti-american protests in the middle east. the man being blamed for firing up the protesters w
gotten out of the united states navy, i left with a beat up car and $250, and that's all i had to my name. when i went off to start my pro wrestling career. >> there's a segment from the obama campaign released saying it's shocking that the candidate for the president of united states would go behind doors and declare a group of wealthy donors that half the american people view themselves as victims. when you've written off half the nation. i mean, they've got a point. i think it's an embarrassing thing for mitt romney. however, he tried to spin this. >> well, it seems mitt romney lately has been saying a lot of embarrassing things. you know, and you're not going to endear yourself to 47% of the country, and i would think it's going to be hard to win. but maybe the plan is that they've got these new voter registration laws where they can deny 45% of the country of the ability to vote. maybe that's their ultimate plan to only get to half the country and let only half the country vote in the first place. because on that note, this whole thing's a farce. voter fraud is a complete red flag. t
, blunt words from bill clinton. the 42nd president of the united states on the nuclear threat from iran. you trust ahmadinejad? >> not on this, i don't. >> why should israel be allowed to have nukes? >> no one thinks that israel is about to drop a bomb on tehran. >> this master campaigner, what he would say to mitt romney. >> if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. >> and his take on president obama and the economy. how has he managed to avoid public retribution for not fixing the economy better than he has done? >> because this is not a normal time. >> plus his extraordinary work with the clinton global initiative. >> we don't have to produce miracles. all we have to produce is progress. we just keep pushing these rocks up the hichll. >> is the world ready for a clinton back in the office? >> i can run for president of ireland because of my irish heritage. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." good evening. the most powerful man and woman in the world are gathered
is in spite of the fact that we deny the holocaust, that we threaten israel and we demonize the united states and we do all this stuff, we want you to trust us. in spite of the fact that we won't cooperate with the international regime set up to avoid an arms race in the middle east and set up to avoid nuclear proliferation, we want you to trust us. so they don't have a tenable position. >> do you trust him? >> the reason nobody trusts him is because they don't have a tenable position. >> do you trust ahmadinejad? >> not on this, i don't. >> his argument is look, why should america be allowed nuclear weapons, why should israel, who have never admitted they have them, why should they be permitted to have them. why should many countries be allowed nuclear weapons and not iran? >> well then, why isn't he going for some bigger nonproliferation initiative instead of acting like what he really wants is a nuclear bomb because that will help to get everybody to get rid of their nuclear weapons. no serious person believes that. israel is not supporting hezbollah. israel doesn't send terrorists across
of the states want to work with the united states. they have a small group inside the state that wants to use the united states to rally and raise their own cause and also to undercut the government. so the worst thing we could do is cut support to these governments. they need our help, they want our help. they want to modernize, they want to work with the united states. but we have to do is insist they fulfill their responsibilities to protect our sovereign territory in their countries. >> i want to talk to you about a story that we have been reporting. you've heard about the people who are dressed up in nato uniforms, going in and killing people, harming people. we'll do a story about a young man killed in afghanistan, working -- he said he didn't feel safe trusting the troops he was training -- training the people he was training to be police officer. can you talk about that? that say real problem, isn't it? >> it is a real problem. and i know our commanders in afghanistan are taking additional measures, like making sure our troops are armed, making sure there are sufficient numbers of tro
forces by the date certain that the united states is going to depart. if you stop the recruitment and revet all of the troops you would extend the amount of time before the united states reaches the level where it should say to the military that it's time for us to depart. but the united states says we're going to leave at this date. so the concern would be are you now going to try to accelerate the recruitment and training. the vetting process itself works well it just hasn't been enforce ed. >> do you think that perhaps there is a possibility that the u.s. will pull out earlier? >> no, i don't think so. not at all. i think what's important is the united states and nato have demonstrated a partnership with the afghans that is really unprecedented and unmatched. the united states is going to lean into the wind. they're not going to back off because we have got this trouble spot. they are instituting the rules and regulations they have in place. they are being more aggressive about those and they are also instituting a couple of extra steps in that there might be what is known as t
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
of the island and here in the united states, the east coast is not out of play either. so let's get right to alexandra steel. she is at cnn hurricane headquarters. what can you tell us? >> it's not as bad as it could be for bermuda. bermuda sees hurricanes about three every ten years and it's moving farther east than we'd seen it before. this is the atlantic. we do have two hurricanes at play. there's leslie. here is michael. this is a category 2, it is small, tight, powerful. 105-mile-an-hour winds. good news, won't affect anyone, won't affect land. so with that, our attention turns to leslie. now, right now it's category 1, maximum sustained winds at 75 miles an hour. what's happened is it has sat over the same space, kind of the cold water for the last 18 hours or so. so we have not seen any intensification. so that is the good news. here is the projected path. now, you can see here is bermuda right now, it's about 430 miles south/southeast of bermuda, expected to make the past farther east than earlier thought sunday morning. so here are the impacts. this area east of haley fax cou ha
not been events where people feel as though the united states is under attack, under siege. there's a feeling that something is spinning out of control in the middle east and we need to understand it. >> fareed, thank you. jim, jessica. be sure to tune in sunday night, 8:00 and 11:00. fareed has a fascinating special. global lessons, putting america to work. thanks, everyone. >>> we polled registered voters to identify their top foreign policy concerns what keeps you up at night? syria number five concern, afghanistan four, china, three, number two is immigration and the number one concern was terrorism. tonight, the man whose long service as mayor of new york and public persona ever since has been defined by a single horrific act of terror, rudy giuliani. >> the thing that keeps me up at night, probably more than most, is the fear of an attack, probably because i lived through one and had to be responsible for a city during the worst attack in the history. >> put your mask on. >> very hard to tell people in america not to be worried about terrorism, i wish i could say that to him
sort of balance. >> well, when the president of the united states offered a $4 trillion cut to spending, republicans pushed it away. now the president did sign into law a $2 trillion cut, that's reality. doesn't get credit for it but the president did offer a grand bargain and republicans refused to accept it. >> so then we head into the conversations about jobs, sort of this number that you talk about but i think there's a measurement that is how people feel. you can talk about bottoming out and 4.5 million jobs and the number was much bigger, et cetera, if people don't feel job secure, that's a huge problem. >> you're absolutely right. if you didn't get one of those 4.5 million jobs, you can't be happy. the economy is growing and we've added jobs. that's a reality and there are some amazing things going on in the united states. things that we should be very proud of. one of which is the creation of 4.5 million jobs but many other things, support for education going up. now the republicans want to roll that back. they want to attack pel grants. we have to tell both sides of the story a
europe the president of the united states, you've been there for four years, they can't get through one sentence without mentioning george w. bush, that's not what president obama got elected to do. most people are disenfranchised. they look at the hope, the change, the bringing the kcounty together. we're not the red states, the blue states, we're the united states. where did that go? all of that has gone out the door. >> it went out the door with some republicans in congress. >> no, but that's not the way that it operated and i think the country recognizes it's off track. i think they do want to turn around. that's the whole premise of the romney/ryan presidency, the candidacy. and that's where i think mitt romney will be the next president of the united states. we do need a turnaround, somebody who knows about jobs and the economy, somebody who knows about business. that's why mitt romney will be the next president. >> the democrats are happy to have this comparison between do you want to go back to the clinton years or the bush years? what do republicans point to? what decade of gov
of english as the official language of the united states. they called for the arizona papers please laws to be emulated across the country, and then the author of the arizona papers please law left the gop platform committee in order to go sue the obama administration to try to stop the mini version of the dream act the president brought about by executive order because of course republicans in congress remain totally hostile to it now even though long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away, it was a republican act in the first place. they are the biggest growing block of voters. latino voters are the reason democrats think texas is going to be a swing state as early as 2016. and to the extent that republicans want to woo those voters now in 2012, they're not trying to do it on policy. they're trying to do it on identity politics alone. it is a big gamble for them, actually, as a party. so far it's paying off in very, very, very tiny poll numbers. democrats get their chance to try to claw those numbers back this upcoming week. joining us now is victoria soto, a contributor to nbc latino. th
, there was revolution and they came back to the united states. and my dad had to get help, financial help, the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. we have big hearts. we care for people who have needs. we help get them back. we help lift them up. then we don't make that a permanent lifestyle. we don't have them become government dependents. we help people. they get them on their feet. and then they build a brighter future. >> where was this belief system when romney was talking to the big money crowd back in may? romney sounds a heck of a lot different than the guy in boca raton who made a character judgment about half country. >> these are people who pay no income tax. 47% of americans pay no income tax. our message of low taxes doesn't connect. out there talking about tax cuts to the rich. that's what they sell every four years, and so my job is not to worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility -- >> okay, so mitt romney seems confused. wait a minute. other republicans have complete clarity
'm running for a second term as president of the united states. >> president obama today. joining me now, a man with a unique perspective on all of this, newt gingrich disagrees with the president on just about everything and of course, he ran against mitt romney and joins me now. mr. speaker, welcome back. how are you? >> good to be with you. i have to say, given that sound bite, i thought barack obama sounded like a conservative republican. that was a great series of sentiments. i agreed with every single one of them. i just wish his policies were there. >> if he's reunited the whole of america, including you, this is a good step forward, isn't it? >> that's right. well, he is rhetorically terrific. unfortunately, his policies were almost exactly the opposite of his speech. but it was a very good speech. he clearly has learned something from bill clinton recently, because he now knows how to sound like he's a conservative american even if his policies are very left wing. >> do you believe that presidential candidates should be held accountable to their words? do you think they should l
? that makes sense. one of the least controversial things you could possibly imagine the united states government agreeing to. well, a bill to adjust that payment for the cost of living was brought to the senate floor last thursday. it was expected to go ahead. no muss, no fuss, who's going to argue with that? it was blocked by someone in governor romney's party. an unnamed republican senator has put a hold on the cost of living adjustment to the surviving spouses and children's payment for soldiers killed in the war. the same hold is also affecting the disability payments to soldiers who are wounded in the war. some republican senator is blocking this. we don't know who. governor romney, here's a place to start. you are now the leader of the republican party. i realize you're having a hard time getting the training wheels off when it comes to national security, but here's an easy one. should that senator from your own party lift that hold on the cost of living adjustment to the payments to those people who we sort of owe it to? should a republican senator who's holding this up keep th
